Kathleen Frances has shared new single “Shout Love”, her first single of the year following on from “Define”, released last year. The songwriter and producer has also announced her first London headline show at Servant Jazz Quarters on 24th November.
Over a rolling and memory-inducing piano line Frances uses her natural baritone to sooth and comfort in the face of despair. “No I won’t save my breath / No I won’t come to tend / Oh but I shout love” she declares as the chorus gently rises, proving that she won’t back down any longer, instead face the world head on. The gently flowing instrumentation acts as a cloud to support Frances’ words, carrying her message far and wide.
Explaining about the track Frances said:
“This was written on my bed in the middle of the night. The summer of the pandemic. I was feeling pretty low and anxious during this time, probably like many other people. I was letting the shit get to me and I wrote this as an almost aggressive positive response. I chose, in that moment, to marvel at the absurdity of the world. Rather than instilling existential dread it inspired a drive to shout out whatever I wanted to bring/do/be in this life, no holding back”
